Question about Sony Ericsson K750

Can't plug in the charger.

Hi, can you help? My Sony ericsson is pretty new still and I love it. I went to a festival at the weekend and dropped it in the mud. Everything works fine except the holes forplugging in the charger are caked in mud which is really hard now. I tried to pick it out with a matchstick but then that broke and is stuck too. What can i do? Thanks.

Re: Can't plug in the charger.

I would try a small drill bit (such as a 2.5mm drill bit) and turn it gently by hand (using only your fingers to turn the drill bit !) - dont use a drill ! - just the bit. I think doing that should pull out most of the mud from the centre of the holes, allowing you to pick out the stuff from the corners...

Re: Can't plug in the charger.

Try gently dabbing a bit of vegetable oil onto the mud - try and get the mud saturated but dont stick the phone in a bowl of oil. Depending how much clay etc there is in the mud, this should soften it up enough to clean it out. remove the battery before doing any poking around in the hole, and use something a bit stronger than a matchstick (metal is not ideal) hunt for something made of strong plastic. Be patient, you may have to dig it out bit by bit. Hope this helps, if the oil doesn't soften the mud enough then please ask again, there are other more dangerous ways to do it :)

Charger needs to be held in place to charge, which is a bummer but possible. Battery is completely flat, is it charging when red light is on and/or flashing? also phone is not being detected by computer,...

Unfortunately Sony Ericsson would not swap or repair this phone, as it just too old, well outside of warranty. It sounds like the charger block itself may be faulty, if it is, it should be pretty easy for a technician to repair it.

Trying to charge my sony ericsson k800 mobile and it won't charge. Cannot get 'optimised charging' to appear. Battery now completely flat

Hi, you will need to get another charger. Charger might be faulty and will need to be replaced.

If after replacing charger and still does not charge, then the charging port where you plug in the charger is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Take care.
